Hello! When I think of birthdays, the first thing that comes to my mind is balloons (yes! Not cakes, but balloons!) I loved balloons as a child – me and my sis would never miss a chance from buying one from a street seller! Fun times! 🙂
So, I made a birthday card with balloons in it –
I used balloons from Simon Says Stamp Birthday Bits and various distress ink. After inking up the stamp, I dabbed in water using a paint brush and stamped it. I then added/spread color from the same brush. I didn’t wait for the balloons to dry before I stamped the others. I also colored the background using distress inks.
Once the watercolor panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment from Paper Trey Ink Good Times using Memento Tuxedo Black. I then trimmed the watercolor panel, added strips of black card stock and washi tape on the card base before foam mounting the panel on top. And since I just couldn’t leave it alone, I added Wink of Stella clear glitter on the balloons and then some gold glitter from Deco Art Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint. Well, I stopped there! 😀
And take a look at this – I so surprised – I received this utterly adorable card from Kamila Routis!! Isn’t it sweet!? Those adorable little images (my guess, from Lawn Fawn) completely stole my heart! Thank you so much for snding me this Kamila!! Really made my day a very happy day! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
